be sure to say VEGAN 3 times - Edit

Ordered the vegan sliders and they brought me Lamb sliders — terrible .... I’m vegan. Only came here because my manager was taking me to Lunch and she is NOT vegan. This use to be one of my favorite spots.

Another Busboys and Poets - Edit

In Hyattsville, there are few choices for vegans. In that sense, this place is like saving grace to the vegan palate. However, after that, the food is just good. Not phenomenal, not disappointing, but diner casual restaurant good.

The items are clearly marked vegan or vegetarian when so defined. Gluten free is also available for some items. The food is classic Americana - burgers, salads, appetizers, soups, coffee, drinks, desserts. There are vegan options for everything like a Cobb salad, falafel sandwich, veg burger, soy lattes, vegan soups, vegan panini/wraps/meats and desserts (soy yogurt parfait, cookie/ brownie/cheesecake). It's a ½ notch up from diner food, and a great choice for anyone needing vegan in this area of Maryland.

The food isn't bad, but it won't wow you and hope for the next time to return. This is more of a location of vegan options in a vegan desert that can accommodate non-vegans and vegans alike.

The staff are highly attentive, and the space occupied is more impressive than any other of the sister locations in the DC metro area.

Pros: Vegan items marked, Vegetarian items marked, Vegan lattes

Cons: Diner-style food

Love this place! - Edit

Not a 100%-veg place, however, vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free items are clearly marked on the menu. What we had was so delicious! The coconut tofu bites and the poached pear salad. Still dreaming of the coconut tofu bites, and can't wait to go back! They also have two locations in Washington, DC and one in Arlington, VA. A good place to go if dining out with non-veg people who want to eat non-veg.
